Gary Katz is a healthcare entrepreneur with proven expertise and success in the physical therapy space.

In 2000, Gary took a leap of faith and left his position as Regional Vice President at HealthSouth to open his own physical therapy practice. Gary grew Maryland SportsCare & Rehab from a sole outpatient clinic to over 30 locations plus an athletic training outreach program that served school districts and youth sports organizations throughout Maryland. At the same time, Gary co-founded and operated PT Network, a partnership of other privately-owned physical therapy practices, which grew to over 20 locations throughout Delaware, Northern Virginia, Washington, DC and West Virginia.

In 2013, Gary orchestrated a private equity investment of Maryland SportsCare & Rehab and PT Network which resulted in the creation of Pivot Health Solutions. Pivot has a current national footprint of over 250 outpatient physical therapy clinics and an occupational health division which was acquired by Athletico in 2022. Gary served as Pivot’s first Chief Executive Officer before shifting to Chief Growth Officer and Senior Executive Advisor. Gary also served on Pivot’s Board of Directors.

Gary is currently co-founder of Kinect Partners which manages and operates a partnership of physical therapy practices in Florida and New England.  In addition to outpatient clinics, the partnership includes rehabilitation services at senior living communities.

Gary’s success comes from his strong business acumen and ability to network for the mutual good. He is an active investor in emerging healthcare technologies and services and is a strong supporter of the Diabetes Research Institute and D-Skate, a program that supports youth hockey players with Type 1 diabetes. Earlier in his career, Gary was a consulting physical therapist to the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League.

Gary graduated from the University of Connecticut with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Therapy and Athletic Training.
